Find a Director
Parker Street Productions
Jade Jenise Dixon describes herself as an “actor’s director.” Actors enjoy working with Ms. Dixon because Jade’s experience as an actress herself, affords her an acute sensitivity to the craft. And now that Jade is behind the camera, she is making leaps and strides. Her short film, Sunrise, recently won “Best Spiritual Film” at the Olympus Film Festival in Hollywood and is currently a Finalist in the Oaxaca Film Festival in Mexico.
It all started with Jade’s first feature film as writer/ director, TRUTH HALL. Once she stepped behind the camera to helm this passion project, Jade never looked back. The film won five film festival awards and was an official selection of several festivals including American Black Film Festival, UrbanWorld and Big Bear. Ultimately, TRUTH HALL aired on the BET network in heavy rotation and received distribution from Image Entertainment/ RLJ.
Jade’s most recent feature film, Dog Park, won Best Ensemble Cast at the DTLA Film Festival in Downtown Los Angeles and has been a meaningful accomplishment for Jade since many female directors rarely make a second feature film.
Jade recently completed a successful crowdfunding campaign to develop a biopic of her life growing up in a small town with 17 sisters and brothers. This was her normal, until she moved to the big city at the age of 12 and discovered the rest of the world.
